|Notes||What is CodeerDojo?
CoderDojo is a movement of free coding clubs for young people.
At a CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more. Dojos are set up, run by and taught at by volunteers. In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what theyve been working on and so on. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable, kick ass experience. CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.
CoderDojo has just one rule: Above All: Be Cool, bullying, lying, wasting peoples time and so on is uncool.
